Breaking up, slimming down and Instagramming are all in a day’s work for the stars. But going to jail for manslaughter is a little out of the ordinary …
Melrose Place star jailed
Amy Locane-Bovenizer, who played Jake’s girlfriend in the first 13 episodes of Melrose Place, has been sentenced to three years in prison for driving drunk and killing a woman.
She initially faced up to 10 years in prison but the judge lowered the maximum sentence citing the hardship on Locane-Bovenizer’s two children – one has a medical and mental disability.
Amy, whose blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit when the crash occurred, apologized to the dead woman’s family.
But when her husband heard the verdict he shouted “What a travesty!” and stormed out of the courtroom.

Lady Gaga’s surgery shock
Following Lady Gaga‘s apology to fans for cancelling several tour dates, a statement has been released confirming the whole tour has been called off because she needs surgery.
“Live Nation Global Touring has confirmed that the remainder of the Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball performances have been cancelled. After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip caused by strenuous repetitive movements in her performances. She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour, so she can heal. Refunds for the cancelled performances will be available at point of purchase starting Feb 14, 2013.”
Brad & Ange are making wine
Decanter magazine reports the couple will produce wine using grapes grown at their Provence estate, Miraval.
“They (the Jolie-Pitts) want to ensure they are making the best Provence wines they can. They were present at the blending sessions this year, and are relooking at everything from the installations in the winery – where we have already switched to stainless steel tanks – to reworking the labels across the range of wines.”
The first Miraval rosés should be on the market next month, March 2013, with the white wines arriving at the end of the summer.
Jennifer’s amazing bikini body
Jennifer Love Hewitt has revealed grief prompted her to get into the best shape she’s ever been.
The actress told Shape magazine that she was completely devastated when her mother, Patricia, passed away last June, and wanted to isolate herself, but her friends encouraged her to get active instead.
“When life hits you so hard – whether someone you care for dies or your lover leaves you – working out can save your life. It certainly saved mine,” she explained.
Jennifer has copped flack in the past for being curvy. “A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be,” she wrote on her website back in 2007, after unflattering photos of her in a bikini went viral. “And being a size 0 doesn’t make you beautiful.”
Rihanna & Katy break up
At last year’s Grammys, one-time BFFs Katy Perry and Rihanna sat next to each other giggling and smiling. This year they barely spoke and the reason has been revealed: Chris Brown.
US Weekly reports: “Rihanna’s reunion with Chris Brown at this year’s Grammy Awards stirred up plenty of buzz among fans, but it turns out that some of the couple’s famous friends aren’t so hot about their rekindled romance either. Katy Perry, who got close with the “Stay” singer at last year’s Grammys, “doesn’t approve” of Rihanna’s decision to get back together with Brown, 23, and their friendship has suffered as a result of it.”
It’s not the first time rumours have swirled about Katy’s disapproval. In November, the New York Daily News reported that the two were “barely talking” because Katy fears Rihanna is “making a huge mistake and doesn’t want to be part of it”.
